Bernie Mac Dies

Macs career accomplishments were numerous

along with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu in the movie Charlie’s Angels as the sidekick Bosley.

Back in 2007, Mac told David Letterman on the CBS’ Late Show that he planned to retire soon. “Bernie Mac was a comedian’s comedian. When he was on stage he was relentless,” says Harvey.
“We used to call him the train wreck. He would run his train of jokes into you and he would let you pick up all of the pieces.”

“He didn’t care how he said it, how it sounded to you, and how you felt about it as long as you were laughing, and Lord have mercy, Bernie made people laugh. The stand-up world is missing one of the great stand ups. We have truly lost one of the kings.”
